This grave is the resting place of the boy who died alongside Harry Dale when an unmarked mine killed them at the beach just near to the churchyard where they're buried.  A pot of Rosemary, a plant long associated with rememberence, seems the ideal choice to commemorate them.  Alternatively, we can leave fresh flowers grown in Cornwall, when they are available, wrapped to keep them fresh.

Ronald Munting


26th July 1944 - Gunwalloe Churchyard, The Lizard

Ronald Munting was a friend of Harry Dale, evacuated from the same area of London, and both boys died tragically when they detonated an unmarked mine on the beach at Gunwalloe.

Ronald was born in Middlesex in May 1932, and in 1939 his residence is given as the All Saints Girl House in St Albans, which was the location to which a London-based hospital school was evacuated at the start of World War 2.  There seems to be no record of when Ronald moved from here to Cornwall.  The headstone also commemorates his parents who it says were killed during the London Blitz.
